The most handy thing in your purse right now has got to be your lip balm. This all-purpose miracle tube can soothe dry hands, tame stray eyebrows and keep down those dreaded flyways after a blow-dry. Oh, and it also keeps your gorgeous smackers totally kissable – even when the wind kicks up and the harsh, cool air threatens to strip those lips of any and all moisture. Here are our picks of the best balms at each price point:
Make Up Store Lip Care Mix, $35
This handy pot is an amazing 3-in-1. The green cream is for exfoliating the lips to get rid of dry flakes and make them smoother. The white cream is a moisturiser and can also be used to remove excess lipstick when cleansing. And finally, the pink cream finishes off the treatment with sweet shade of colour.
asap Hydrating Lip Balm+, $20
asap Hydrating Lip Balm+ perfects, heals and protects. It’s suitable for all skin types and contains a powerful antioxidant that even keeps coldsores at bay as well as acting as an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. This lip balm can be used on its own or as gloss over lip colour and even contain SPF15+.
Suvana Organic Lip Balm, $9.95
This certified organic lip balm may as well change its name to ‘miracle in a tube’. The active ingredients of cocoa butter, paw paw and honey nourish, soothe and soften … not just your lips, but wherever you happen to rub it! A little goes a long way so it’s a keeper. Stash in your handbag as your go-to wonder cream!
